Ben Carson Suggests Holocaust Would Have Been Less Likely if Jews Were Armed
Republican candidate Ben Carson continued his contentious comments about guns Thursday telling in a fresh interview that the Jews may have been capable of diminishing the likelihood of the Holocaust if they were armed.
Carson comments, which drew swift blame on CNN. He said that passengers on Flight 93, which crashed on 9/11, helped avoid further tragedy by rushing the gunman.
In Carson’s new book “A Perfect Union,” Carson writes that
“through a combination of removing guns and disseminating propaganda, the Nazis were able to carry out their evil intentions with relatively little resistance.”
On CNN, Carson was asked:
“But just to clarify, if there had been no gun control laws in Europe at that time, would 6 million Jews have been slaughtered?”
The comments drew a swift response from the Anti-Defamation League.
“Ben Carson has a right to his views on gun control, but the notion that Hitler’s gun control policy contributed to the Holocaust is historically inaccurate,” said Jonathan Greenblatt, National Director of the organization. “The small number of personal firearms available to Germany’s Jews in 1938 could in no way have stopped the totalitarian power of the Nazi German state.”
